Weighing in at 84 pages, this attractive 6x9 grimoire of awesome and twisted little tales caught my eye initially not because of the haunting cover art, but because of the quality and power of the authors prose.

Its horror, its experimental, its literary, its PP/FF, and everything in ...more

Idle Hands is a continuation of the rock star character, John Moon, and plays with the readers head. Cody could easily expand Moons story into a novel and give Heart-Shaped Box author Joe Hill a run for his ...more
